Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner Declares September 13 "Rolando Rojas Day"

During a special reception hosted by the Consulate General of Mexico in Houston, the Mexico Tourism Board and Serrano Gallery, Oaxacan artist Rolando Rojas was recognized with a special honor by the City of Houston: Mayor Sylvester Turner declared September 13 "Rolando Rojas Day."

The proclamation reads:

"The presence of Rolando Rojas in Houston, whose influential work resonates within local and international contexts alike, not only marks a new source of inspiration for Houstonians, but also contributes to ongoing conversations about what is possible and desirable within our community, and continues to build on our city’s reputation as a creative destination and important hub for Latino and Latin American art."

The event, which was attended by representatives from the local artistic community and the consular community (with senior representatives from seven countries in attendance), marked the one-year anniversary of the opening of the artist's studio in Houston, and showcased the artist's most recent work.

"To have an artist of the caliber of Rolando Rojas here at Silver Street Studios is always worth celebrating. Today, we are pleased to see Rolando's presence and contributions to our great city recognized in this special way by Mayor Turner" remarked Valentina Atkinson, of Serrano Gallery.
